I think the plan will be to do classic tapas at Tapeo, anem de tapes or somewhere similar for lunch, then show up at Tickets at 7 pm and cross our fingers! We have only a day and change in Barcelona, so why not make the most of it?

Adding Ca D'Oro to the cicheti list. Thanks!

Tickets looks amazing. I'm a big fan of molecular gastronomy, so I'd love the chance to eat at one of the Adria's restaurants.

Unfortunately, we're leaving for Europe in a bit over a week, so reservations are impossible. Is it worth showing up at 7 pm on a Tuesday night and hoping for a cancellation?

Thanks, alpenazzi -- the Barrio Gotic is on our itinerary, and Tapeo looks great. Do you think we'll need a reservation for lunch, or could we just grab seats at the bar?

My girlfriend and I will be spending a week in Italy, with a one-day stopover in Barcelona on the way over. We'd love recommendations for great food in any of these cities. We're plan on having one or two "splurge" dinners, but are most interested in more casual, mid-priced places that showcase the local cuisine well.

A few things we're particularly interested in:

* Tapas in Barcelona.
* Seafood and cicheti in Venice. (We're staying in Dorsoduro but will happily travel for great eats.) We'll also likely do one splurge dinner here -- any thoughts? (We live in NYC and eat well, so something that we couldn't find there would be ideal.)
* We're lucky enough to have a local friend with great taste taking us around Bologna; last time I was there, he led me to two of the best meals of my life. But any can't-misses I should mention to him?
* We'll likely do another splurge dinner in Milan.

Thanks!
